People just don't understand mental illness at all. Not unless they've had something themselves or loved someone that has it.

I really don't even want to try and explain it to a couple of people I know - I'm quite happy nowadays if I just wake up and don't have a headache. I can talk to my wife and my son - they accept me completely and I don't need to explain anything.

The worst part of the day is killing time before my therapist/shrink appointment starts. It makes me so agitated. I just try to think of all the things i should talk about but i don't really want to. nervous about what i might come out with. My mind goes blank when i'm trying to think of things to talk about.

How do you explain to someone what it feels like to wake up before it's light and feel so lost and terrified you don't know how you'll be able to deal with anything ever again.

I guess you just say it like that and hope something in their life experience was similar enough to allow them to relate to it.

You should tell him how you feel - tell them the truth. There's no point wasting your time with these creatures otherwise.

Terrible feeling mate - thank God it doesn't last forever.

A couple of old friends of mine will never get it - because they can't even believe I get like that, they think I'm confident and okay. Because when they see me that's the image I project - they have no idea.

Can feel that way when lost a family member or more than one family member. Something missing in ones life.

It's so hard to be unemployed and not be depressed. The feelings of hopelessness are so rife.

You are just inbetween at the moment. Do some voluntary work or similar to fill in resume.

Or a paper run if they still do those there. It is some money coming in.

Keep active, stay strong.
